Description

Long Description

Although this is not a recent variety from Les Jackson it is the first time it has been offered for sale in the UK. AS a cut flower and garden variety it has all the right ingredients: good colour, good stems, free flowering and it does seem to last better than most when cut. The flowers themselves blend from a rich lavender purple at the tips through paler shades to white at the base of each petal. It has true small decorative form making a very neat flower and I am sure this will prove to be popular. Strong growth up to 1.2m.
